    Very groggy all day long. I work full time, so this does not help. My first day on this medication and so far very tired. Like a dream like state.

    doctor gave to me in place of Prozac. So far I am so sleepy and hung-over in the morn I can't get my day started. Hungry too, most of the time. 15mg which is low but, Lord is this stuff different. Will see if it helps with moods, etc. Need to get up and make myself move!! Walk, housecleaning, something!! I hope I start feeling better soon, if not, will call the doctor.
